A special investigation team (SIT) of the police today nominated Gurdeep Singh Pander, the then Kotkapura SHO, as an accused in the Behbal Kalan police firing case of October 14, 2015. Pander is already in jail for the past 20 days after he was arrested by the SIT on June 25 in the 2015 firing incident at Kotkapura.

During arguments in the court of the District and Sessions Judge, the SIT said other than his active role in the firing incident, Gurdeep had also played a role in hatching a conspiracy along with other police officials.

The SIT alleged that after the Kotkapura firing incident on October 14, 2015, a police team led by former SSP Charanjit Singh Sharma had a meeting at the Kotkapura police station and he allegedly went to Behbal Kalan to use force on the protesters. Being the SHO, Kotkapura, at that time, Pander was an active member of this team.

After the incident, the team returned to the police station and planned fabrication of evidence by creating a false self-defence theory, the SIT alleged in the court. It alleged that Pander actively facilitated other cops in the fabrication of evidence. The court rejected the regular bail plea of Pander and the anticipatory bail of the then Kotkapura DSP, Baljit Singh Sidhu, another accused in the case.
